Reference message #42. My 1995 Buick Century Electrical Problem is identical to your car problem. First it was the inoperative door locks and anti lock warning light. Two days later I lost the leadlights, brake lights and clock setting. All other systems appear to be operating efficiently. I bought the car new, now has 123,000 miles. No traumatic accidents, no flood damage, no lightning stikes, the vehicle has been reasonably maintained. Your insight into this phenomenon will be appreciated.

I have a 98 Buick Century. This year the air conditioning compressor konk'd out. It will cost at least $800 to replace. I figured not now, maybe later or maybe not at all as long as the windows work. Then, almost on cue my drivers door window goes on the fritz. Everytime I turn the car on it rolls all the way down. Then after a few seconds the up button will work and I can adjust the level, I just can't lower it as the down button doesn't work. I was afraid the motor was gone but the motor seems to move the window fine. I'm wondering if this is a minor chip or relay problem of some kind or am I looking at several hundreds of dollars to fix it. I'd like to know more about it before I take the car to a repair shop and have them tell me what's wrong, or tell me what will get them the biggest profit.

I recently had a similar problem.
Turned out to be a bad alternator.
I am guessing that the electrical problems were due to the low battery.

The abs warning light comes on when I start my 2000 buick century limited and it stays on. I had the brakes checked and the drums in the rear new installed. I had the electrical abs checked out. The warning light went out for a week. Now it is on again and stays on. Can anyone help me on what the problem is. Thank you for your comments. Rich

If the fluid level is ok in the master cylinder reservoir, youy'll need an ABS capable scanner to retrieve any stored diagnostic trouble codes.

#54 of 592 99 Century-Replaced Fuel Sensor-Problems Gasing Up
Oct 01, 2005 (3:53 am)
About a month ago, I had my fuel sensor replaced (fuel gauge was broken) at the Buick dealer to the tune of about $600. After that I have been gradually having problems filling my gas tank. I had the car back to the dealer (to replaced drivers-side auto window motor) and they checked the gas seal and said they couldn't find anything. Anyway, as soon as I start to fill up the nozzle clicks off. It has gone from bad to worse. Can get half a tank full then have to stop, and if I'm lucky can get it filled on the second try. Two days ago, however, I was just about on Empty and I went to fill up -- only got about 3 gallons in and the gas backed up and overflowed onto the pavement and my feet. The Buick service mgr is going to look at it this Tuesday and try to put gas in it himself. Just wondering if anyone else has had a problem like this and had a solution. Lately, it seems I'm putting more money into the car than its worth. Any feedback? Thanks.

I bought my Buick Century one year and four months ago. The first year was fine with 65,000 miles and two owners. After the second year, I have replaced the starter. Replace the compressor so the mechanic says twice, (meaning two separate mechanic completed the AC problem. Two weeks latter, the AC stopped working. It's the rings the said. Two weeks latter after making home with no problems. The next day the car will not excelerate over 10 mph. I had to turn the car off to get it to go 30 to 40 mph. Finally I park at at repair shop that stated the could not run a computerize scan, but felt that the transmission was gone along with the gears. Shocked I transferred the car back to the dealer that refuses to give a written estimate but says that it is the transmission and gears. When I asked for a written estimate they have refused. I totally feel that they are not being honest. They seem to be afraid to give a written estimate.
#56 of 592 Wider tires for Buick Century.
Oct 13, 2005 (1:33 pm)
I have a 1994 Buick Century and wanted to put new tires on it that are wider than the standard 185 - 14s which are standard. Would any one know if this is possible and/or how wide I could go before the tires rub on the fender wells?
